European Plastics Recyclers (EuPC) is working on the third edition of its survey into the use of recycled plastic materials (rPM) by plastics converters. The ongoing transition to a circular economy poses many challenges for the European plastics industry and finding ways to increase the volume of recycled plastics is increasingly important to the future of the industry. Plastics converters are set to play a central role in ensuring there is a strong market for rPM, which is then used as raw material for the creation of new products.
The survey follows similar studies in 2017 and 2018, and looks to improve knowledge of the use of rPM in the European plastics converting industry, and to better support converters as they transition towards a circular economy.
The survey questionnaire, which can be accessed in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Turkish and Polish, and is open to all European companies from the plastics converting industry, will be open until December 2019. The full results from the survey will be published during the first quarter of 2020.
